The curse of the NUM8ERS continues in Rachel Ward's CHA0T1C, earth-shattering sequel! Adam has more than inherited his mother's curse: When he looks in someone's eyes, he not only sees the date of their death...he feels the searing, shocking pain of it. Since Jem died, Adam has lived by the sea with his great-grandmother, Val. But when rising tides flood the coast, they return to London. The city is an alien, exciting, frightening place. Most disturbing of all, Adam can't help but clock how many people's numbers are in January 2027; how many are on New Year's Day. What chaos awaits the world? Can he and Sarah stop a catastrophe? Or are they, too, counted among the "twenty-sevens"?

The Chaos

Like his mother, Jem, when he looks in people's eyes, Adam can see the dates of their deaths. It's hard enough living with this terrible gift, but life is about to get tougher. Adam sees that everyone around him has the same date - January 2027. Something huge is going to happen. Something bad. But what is it? And what can he do about it?

The surprising patterns of chaos and complexity are to be found in many areas of nature and science, examples ranging from cabbages to coastlines. Quite often, those who could benefit most from an understanding of the principles behind chaos and complexity, for example engineers, geologists, medics, chemists and physicists, are denied access to the power and wonders of the field by the mathematical and unnecessarily convoluted way the topic is usually presented. This book opens up the fascinating opportunities offered by an understanding of this field to the informed layman, using informative and amusing examples of the application of the principles accompanied by many descriptive figures demonstrating the beauty of a science which can now be understood by all!

Chaos theory challenges fundamental ideas in all areas of science, and many of the best examples arise in chemistry. This valuable account of chemical chaos reviews both theory and experiment, emphasizing the simple features that combine to produce 'order within disorder'. The basic building blocks for chaos--nonlinearity and feedback--occur quite naturally in chemical systems. Chaos does not appear suddenly or at random, but is created through one of a small number of highly ordered sequences of increasing complexity. These sequences are comprised of qualitative changes in behavior or 'bifurcations.' The author begins by revealing the links between chemical kinetics and the interdisciplinary subject of dynamical systems. Various bifurcation sequences are then introduced through representative model schemes, with the emphasis on generality and simplicity. Various experimental and diagnostic techniques to test for chaos are then described, and the remaining chapters review experimental studies in a wide range of chemical and biochemical systems. The work is important for researchers and advanced undergraduates in physical chemistry, physics, mathematics, biology, and chemical and mechanical engineering.

Nature provides many examples of physical systems which are described by deterministic equations of motion, but which nevertheless exhibit non-predictable behaviour. The detailed description of turbulent motions remain perhaps the outstanding unsolved problem of classical physics. In recent years, however, a new theory has been formulated which succeeds in making quantitative predictions describing certain transitions to turbulence. Its significance lies in its possible application to large classes (often very dissimilar) of nonlinear systems. The introduction to this book provides an intuitive account of the key idea of phase-space trajectories, Poincaré maps, bifurcations and local universality which are common to all nonlinear dynamical systems. The 41 collected papers which follow fall into four groups. The first section is a general introduction to deterministic chaos and universality. The next 12 articles emphasise the experimental evidence for the theory, with examples drawn from chemistry, biology, optics, electronics and fluid mechanics. A survey of some detailed theoretical considerations is followed by a section which looks forward to further developments inspired by the success of the one-dimensional theory.

One of the bestselling books on Chaos/Fractals examines chaos theory in a much more practical way than other books. Chaos is not just a way of generating computer graphics, or a mathematical curiosity. It has relevance to the real world and the easiest way to explore and visualize chaos is on the computer screen.
